The design of the UAE Pavilion evokes a falcon in flight; referencing the Emirates’ traditional art of falconry. The main building resembles a titanic oval, with a grand, four storey entrance set into the tip. More than 25 feather-like panels are arranged at the dome of the pavilion, each curving down toward the entry of the structure.


Witness sustainability in action as the pavilion's 28 wings open to reveal solar (photovoltaic) panels.

The UAE Pavilion's breathtaking oculus takes the form of the Expo 2020 logo.
